I found this hilarious "Cherubs & Carriage" figurine at an antiques market in New Milford, Connecticut, and I knew I needed to make it into a pincushion! Wouldn't this make the funniest gift for your quilting buddy? Watch out though, she might "re-gift" it to you next year! Good laughs each time.
The silk cushion has an appropriately upholstered look, don't you think? I bet my sisters read this post and thank their lucky stars that they're not getting this for Christmas. Heehee. Watch out, I may have something else up my sleeve!
This pincushion measures 8" long, 5" high, and 4" side-to-side. More info here.
